A little bit of France in Tejas

We used to live in Houston and frequently visited La Madeleine. So going back for a business trip included a nostalgic visit. Honestly, it is still a great breakfast , lunch or dinner stop. And the middle of the afternoon chocolate craving is handles quite well by the tortes.

I had the shrimp crepe, minus the peppers and it was superb! Very creamy and tasty! The staff was very friendly. One of my friends who met me had ordered a half of chicken to take home but she was told that they had run out! So glad that they didn't run out of shrimp!

I met a friend here for lunch recently. It had been a long time since I had eaten at a La Madeline's. My husband & I use to escape here for coffee & dessert when the kids were little. I was delightfully happy to find it just as good as before. A new menu too - or at least since... More

We needed something late in the day and La Madeleine was very convenient. We had sandwiches and salads as well as pizza. Everything was ready when promised, the price was right and food was very good.

Located in the generally upscale Champions area, there was lots of free parking here. Outdoor seating was in heavy use on a comfortable early afternoon. Indoors there were intimate nooks as well as larger tables out in the open. Counter service was patient and courteous. For a late lunch we got quiche Lorraine, a café Americano, and a café Française.... More

Six weeks ago the "bean counting" corporation changed the once excellent store-ground French Roast coffee to a prepackaged coffee. The consumer relations representative called it "the modern way". They seem to have forgotten what made them good.

I really love this quaint and beautiful restaurant. Though I consider the prices high, the ambiance, the flavors and the food is excellent!

Had lunch here two days in a row. Had different salads each day. The salads were good, not great. The staff behind the counter is pretty indifferent. Two people ordered the same salad, one regular size, the other large. We could not tell the difference between a regular size salad and a large one. We watched it being prepared and... More

I want to love this place. The location is perfect for me and I have been a LaMad fan for years since they serve decent food at reasonable prices. I love all things French, so I go here for my croissant breakfasts since there isn't a decent french bakery in Houston....well at least not in the Northwest suburbs. My biggest... More
